    I was there :) It was impressive. They said there were actually 6000+ men there, not 5000, but it doesn't matter that much...

    Thanks for posting this, Biohazardbgr! I was a spectator for this event of 2015 and found it awesome. When I was a U.S. Army soldier stationed in Germany in the 1980s, I participated in one of the annual Waterloo reenactments as a reenactor on the actual field as a Brunswicker infantryman using a borrowed musket and uniform. It was a vastly smaller event than the 2015 bicentennial edition but still enormous fun. However, the most tremendous reenactor experience I have ever known was participating in the 150th anniversary reenactment of Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg while in character as a Rebel infantryman in Armistead's Brigade.
